Graduation Flowers



Along with gift cards for all the high school seniors from our church, we gave the girls a little something extra. 




I have continued collecting Starbuck's Frappuccino bottles since Emma's Bubblegum Blowout earlier this year and thought they would make cute vases for whimsical floral arrangements. Designer Katy Larson created shabby chic bottle labels and gift tags for me in a summery yellow and pink color scheme. 




I wanted these arrangements to have a fresh, youthful feel. Bouquets of carnations in soft pinks and yellows were just what I hoped to find when I did my grocery shopping yesterday.




A gift tag cut with a scalloped circle punch and slipped onto a straw from The Sugar Diva adds the finishing touch.




Congratulations to Abby, Lauren, Rachel and Shelby! We look forward to watching you bloom in this next phase of life.

Melissa,

My husband likes to treat my little girls to a six pack of San Pelligino limonata once in awhile. These little bottle make wonderful gifts for elderly neighbors or sick friends filled with flowers and tied with curling ribbons. I have enough that we've even used them as center pieces for graduation dinners.

This can't work in reality, that's what I think.

CNA training programs are available from community colleges, nursing homes, long-term health care facilities, and hospitals. The Nurse practitioners are also known as Advanced Nurse Practitioners or, Physician Assistants as they assist doctors and relieve them of many duties. Hooter Hiders are made by Bebe au Lait. Look for other signs of nursing home abuse immediately.
